I have two photographs of the same gravestone, with only the surnameWICK visible. It is a large stone, probably double. On the back of onephoto it says "Monmouth IL" and on the other it says "BurlingtonCemetary." It indicates that the grave belongs to my gg grandparents,whose names I do not know. Their son Wm Rufus Wick was b 1853 in PA, anddied 1924 in IA. He married Emily Mahaffey in 1876 in Farmington, IL.The photos are from the 1920s or 30s. I would appreciate any info onWICKs and MAHAFFEYs in the area, and how to get further info about andfrom the cemetary. (These WICKs are not mentioned in theirdaughter-in-law's obituary in 1911, so I would assume they died between1876 and 1911.) Thanks.--

Dear Kathy:I have some reference material regarding Mary (JAMES) CUNNINGHAM. Theinformation is that she died 3 Feb. 1867 and is buried in Section C ofGreenbush Cemetery, Warren County. The source goes on to say that"Mary's last name is spelled Osborne according to the TombstoneInscription Book for Greenbush Cemetery". Do you know someone who wouldlook up this book and clarify what this last comment means? I will behappy to pay a research fee.My wife is also descended from the Young family of Warren County and wehad the pleasure of meeting her cousin, Mary Lawrence, several yearsago.

PEARCELEY or PEARSLEY - My great-grandparents were somewhere in Illinoisin 1870. My g-grandfather was John Pearceley (b. Scotland 1840). (Thename is spelled "Pearceley" or "Pearsley.") There is a rumor that he hada brother, William, living south of Moline and later around HendersonCreek. John appears on the 1880 census in Johnson County, NE. and mygrandfather, Adolphus Orison or Arthur O., was born in 1872 in JohnsonCo., but his sister, Martha, is listed on that same 1880 census as age10 having been born in Illinois (no county given). My g-grandmother'sname was Susan. I know nothing more about her as she died shortly afterher son, my grandfather, was born in NE. I would be grateful to anyonewho could help me find out more about either g-grandparent: an 1860/70census, a marriage index, or the birth of Martha PEARCELEY / PEARSLEY.
